Glenwood Canyon Rafting ~ Grizzly Creek ~ Beginner Run


Glenwood Canyon Rafting 

Grizzly Creek 

Beginner Run



An inevitable result of


taking a 


sizable group


rafting is


the varied 


experience levels


of the various


members of the group.




solution is to


allow the beginners


to join the group


at grizzly creek.


This worked out 


great for our group.


Everyone


got a taste


of the fun


taylored


specifically to


their specific


abilities.


Great times


unimaginable fun,


and memories


that will


last


a lifetime.


Some got their fill


from their 


taste of 


adventure,


while it


left others


looking forward


to their next


trip 


down the river.

In either case, the trip was a success.

Glenwood Canyon Rafting ~ Shoshone Rapids Intermediate Run


Glenwood Canyon Rafting 

Shoshone Rapids



As of this summer,


I can now say,


I've rafted 


both sides


of the continental divide.


Each a unique


experience


special in 


different


ways.


This trip so memorable


in that it was 


the first trip 


down river 


for three of my girls.


My youngest


will have to wait


until she's 


a little older.


The rest of us thrill seekers 


clung to our paddles 


and rowed


our hearts out


winding our 


way down the canyon


following 


the whims 


of the river's rage.


Tossed


jumbled,


and bummed 


along.


Crashing


thundering,


and plummeting 


through each 


and every 


rapid.

  
What a 


wondrous 


way 


to spend a jolly day


riding the Colorado River.
